  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute white onions, green onions, carrots, celery, green and red bell peppers, and garlic until soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, combine salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, nutmeg and cumin. Stir in eggs, ketchup and half-and-half. Blend in vegetable mixture from skillet. Add ground turkey, chicken sausage and bread crumbs. Mix well with hands, then shape into a loaf. Place into greased 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 70 minutes, or until cooked through and nicely browned. Let rest for 10 minutes, then serve with gravy.
  5. To make the gravy: Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute shallots with red and yellow peppers until tender, about 10 minutes. Season with thyme, bay leaf and black pepper. Stir in half-and-half, garlic, beef stock and chicken stock. Increase heat to high, and boil uncovered until liquid is reduced by 1/4, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and ketchup. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Strain gravy, discarding bay leaf and thyme before serving.

We loved this recipe. I must confess to not being a big cumin fan, so I left that out. I cannot imagine that this would have been any better with it. The gravy was just deeeeeeeeeelish!

awesome flavor...on advice of others, less one egg, more garlic. Made an organic packet gravy, ran out of time. Kiddos ate it for dinner, lunch and dinner the next day.

The chicken sausage gave this meatloaf a unique taste. The half and half and all of the different vegetables was waay too much for this recipe. The gravy was horrible (too thin, watery and mil...

I loved this recipe. I did not have time to make the gravy, so this rating is based only on the meatloaf itself. I did find it to be spicy from the cayenne, but I happen to like spice. Mine n...

My husband does not really care much for meatloaf, but this recipe was a hit. The combination of vegies and spices in this meatloaf made it an instant favorite. I did add cheesy french fried oni...
